Peter's 25th

Well, it's happened. Daddy is officially an old fogey. On Saturday, he turned 85...er, make that 25. We had a fun day. We started off the day with a hike in Montebello Open Space Preserve, which is about 20-30 minutes away and absolutely gorgeous! The trail descends down into the headwaters of Stevens Creek and follows alongside for a while. We didn't go very far, but what we did see was beautiful! At this time of year it was green green green everywhere (except the grass at the beginning, which will turn green within the next couple of months and back to yellow shortly after). It was much colder than we expected it to be, based on the weather conditions at home, but luckily, we had a backup blanket to add to Littler's other blanket and a backup jacket for Little in the car. [That's code for 'We hadn't cleaned out the car in ages and had some blankets and a jacket hanging around'.]

After we hiked, we went bowling and had pizza at a Stanford Escondido Village sponsored bowling event. That was fun, but I'm pretty sure Peter and I both had about 3 slices too many. Later in the evening, we had ice cream cake. Yum! Here's a picture of Peter blowing out his candles. Unfortunately, I didn't have 25, so I had to make the shape of a 2 and a 5, and it was much too easy for him. I didn't think to take this picture until we were halfway done singing, so I had to sprint for the camera and barely made it back in time to take a picture, so please forgive to poor composition. [Pay no attention to the potty under the table.]

Your parenthetical comments are my favorite!

For some reason my boys thought that pic of Pete blowing out the candles was giggle-fest worthy. Thanks for sharing!

And Happy Birthday again, Peet!

Has anyone ever told you that your kids are NUTS?

In a good way, of course...

I'm glad you can still get around and explore the Bay area,even with Littler around! It is a nice to place to visit and live too.
